Hi All,

A couple of years ago we had a shower installed to replace an old leaky tub.

The contractor did a good job but failed to caulk around the exterior. Not sure why but I'm not an expert and didn't even notice.

Before I complete the caulking myself, I wanted to glue one piece more securely to the wall. It is a little loose and I think it should be firmly glued to the wall before I caulk.

The piece (see pictures) is cultured marble and it is glued to a piece of drywall which itself is probably glued to our joined cinder block wall (semi-detached home).

What should be used? I plan to just put it in behind the cultured marble slab and put pressure against it until the glue sets (probably my arm, so a quick set would be ideal).

Does anyone have any advice other than calling in a professional?

Also, I'm not too concerned about mold or rot. It has only been two years, the space is small and it is really high up. Only steam would get in and we do have ventilation in the bathroom. Plus, pulling the piece off the wall is beyond my abilities :-)
